We are the biggest fans of the National Parks. We try to visit as many as we can whenever we travel anywhere. There are so many cool things to see inside these parks. So many beautiful places and so much to learn!

Our boys have over 100 different junior ranger badges from National Parks, and other National Sites throughout Utah and the United States.

We also know that visiting a National Park requires some good information and planning, so we share all the details from our visit on these posts. We give tips and tricks, and all the things you need to know.

There are also specific posts about some of our favorite hikes in the national sites. This is to help you choose which trails are going to work for your family.
